White-toothed shrew

The white-toothed shrews are mouse-sized insectivorous mammals that live in temperate and tropical forests, riverine forests, marshes, temperate steppes and other grasslands and semiarid regions. These shrews have distinctive white teeth. A new species of the White-toothed shrew named Crocidura narcondamica was recently discovered in Nacrondam Island of the Andaman and Nicobar group of Islands. This is the first shrew to be discovered in this volcanic island.
